venice and san diego are both terrific, although i'd go withthe 3200+ venice CG if u choose venice, otherwise the 3700 san diego is sweet
Wait! Is that a s754 board? It looks like a s754 chip. Make sure you dont mix and match those.
The A64 3500+ is only available in S939 so it should be okay. The S754 models bracket it at 3700+ and 3400+.
I had concerns about what avatar3k said since the CG stepping was Clawhammer. Then I noticed that the Venice E4 stepping has CG in the SKU which is confusing. In any case, the latest stepping is now E6.
It looks like he's changed his chip choice to an A64 3400+. There were some 3400s made for an oem, that fit s939, but they are very rare right now. I believe E6 is for the dual cores.
i thought you wanted to upgrade to 939 (which was what i was talking about)
lt - yea, cg in the sku, no need to get technical about the names of the steppings, all he needs to know is what we recommend he buy, but w.e
I must of read his post wrong. The 3400+ would be a S754 part.
The E4 and E6 steppings were originally supposed to be for dual core, but now they're both available for single cores too. I guess AMD may be taking failed dual cores, disabling the bad core, and then relabeling them as single cores.
